Our work is below in a very simple format to show examples of what is built or is underway.



current single family new construction project on munjoy hill in portland. this project is highly engineered and very technical despite it's simple appearance. our footprint is

very small and well within the limits of what could be built on our site. our height, while below the permissible restriction has made this project a challenge to build with the

wind category it is engineered to withstand given it's small footprint. the project involved the removal of an existing structure that was in very poor condition after many years

of neglect. the new structure is now in conformance of current setbacks and will be very energy efficient unlike what was replaced.





near completion images of a kitchen renovation for a long term client. our work limits stayed mostly within the limits of existing interior walls but the new sloped ceiling

outside the main kitchen area is all new construction that was possible with a window change above this level to provide more ceiling height for this room.

recently completed small project for another long term client. this is a 30' long wall unit that involved retrofitting an existing wood burning fireplace into a new modern wood

stove insert. the work involved total masonry reconstruction of the existing firebox to accommodate the new appliance, re-framing of existing room openings to create accurate,

near perfect openings to accommodate our cabinet work, and then of course, the assembly. the design is based on horizontal and vertical bands of positives and negatives.

once filled with books and artwork, the design will eventually be complete, until then, here's a glimpse.

small third floor renovation of a very dated and cramped space. the ceilings are now open to the ridge with the existing collar ties exposed. with a new simple pine floor and

discrete lighting, the space is much more elegant and inviting. we also insulated the existing ceiling which has improved the efficiency of the entire building.

post construction images of a single family residence in cape elizabeth. this was a full gut and renovation of an existing 4000 s.f. 1963 masonry, steel and wood framed

structure, plus a 1000 s.f. third floor addition that compliments the existing architecture. the existing floor plan was very compartmentalized as usual but is now very open

and inviting. the wall and roof envelope design is now very energy efficient and has proven itself during lengthy power outages in the winter with no issues.

kitchen renovation in cape elizabeth. this was a full gut and renovation of a dark and gloomy 1960's kitchen that was compartmentalized and had no views to the ocean beyond.

with a little bit of clever structural work, the space is now open to the living room and dining room. the lower right image shows the previous condition.
